Wills, Trusts, Estates, and Probate

Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning Attorneys

Based in northern Virginia, the estate planning lawyers at Gammon & Grange have been providing wills, trusts, estate planning, and probate services to clients for three decades.

Our firm is experienced with many kinds of charitable giving, such as charitable gift annuities, pooled income funds, and charitable remainder trusts.

Our estate planning lawyers provide clients with an individualized estate planning analysis, including tax savings recommendations to maximize distributions to heirs, as well as provide gifts benefiting charity as alternatives to significant tax obligations.

We prepare documents to accomplish the client's objectives through arrangements such as a qualified terminable interest trust, a qualified marital deduction trust that maximizes the use of each spouse's combined unified credit, a living trust, and durable powers of attorney (including general, limited, or health care).
